Introducing pastelage: the new balayage

Everything you need to know about the newest trend that is sure to inject a pop of color into your life!

The world of colouring is constantly changing, and it's safe to say that the use of vibrant and crazy hair colours is the most popular hair trend right now. While balayage has populated the hair scene for many years, L'Oréal Professionnel decided to step up the game by introducing the newest (and funkiest!) trend yet: PASTELAGE.

What is pastelage?

Quite simply, pastelage is a pastel-toned balayage. Just like its less colourful cousin, the idea is for the colour to be gradually applied to the hair, so that you can't see where the high and low-lights start or end. This fluid application of colour allows for a bountiful amount of colour possibilities!

How do I get pastelage hair?

L'Oréal Professionnel is the pioneer behind this hot new trend, thanks to their #ColorfulHair range featuring seven intermixable vibrant shades (such as seemingly edible colours like Iced Mint and Pink Sorbet) and the Crystal Clear, allowing you to adjust the intensity of the colour. However, it is important to keep in mind that the perfect pastelage lies in the mastery of the mixing and application. From #MERMAIDHAIR to #PEEKABOOHAIR , your creativity can definitely be boosted with the help of a professional colourist.

How do I take care of my pastelage?

As always, it is important to use products specifically designed to deal with coloured hair when caring for your pastelage locks. L'Oréal Professionnel's range will help you protect your colour radiance, leaving your pastelage looking shiny, fresh and vibrant.

What pastelage would suit me?

If age is your concern, then don't fret. Indeed, it is not just teenagers and young women who are pining for trendier hair colours these days, with 25% of women up to the age of 40 requesting brighter and bolder shades. As with most hair colouring, it is advisable to take into account your skin tone and eye colour, in order to enhance your glow and brighten up eyes. For example, if you have pale skin, you could opt for blue or lavender tones, whereas if you have a darker skin, try using for pink and orange shades.

If you are looking to shake things up a little, then pastelage is definitely the trend for you!
